What is up my family?
So I haven't quite read your emails yet, but from the quick glances I took, I noticed that you all said something about hoping that it wasn't a rough week or that it sounded like I was upset. I am so sorry! I was hoping all last week that I wouldn't die, just so that I could make sure I emailed you all and let you know that I am ok and I didn't want to make you feel bad or worry about me, and to apologize for making it seem like you needed to. We are just so busy, so I apologized for (to quote myself), "upseting the fans." I just feel like I never write and it is crazy! I don't know why I feel like there is never time. I think it's just maybe because I travel waaaaaay more than other missionaries, and that takes time and there is a lot to report to President about, and I am sorry but his email takes precedence, so then I feel bad when I just have like two sentences for you guys. Last week was especially weird because what happened was we didn't have a car for the first four days of the week because it was in the garage. So we asked the Victoria Sisters if we could borrow their car Tuesday to go and email at the chapel before they had to leave for the day. So by the time we got to the chapel we had like an hour, which would have been just fine if we would have had the key to the library where the second laptop is kept. Instead the key was lost so we had one computer between the two of us. So I let my comp go first, and then when it was my turn there wasn't much time left so I squeaked out a miserable sounding emailing and then logged off. But, to be brief (haha kinda too late for that), it is well with my soul! Aka things are sweet as ever. We've just been a little busy and stressed, but that is life and I have nothing to complain about. Just know that I am sorry for being a turd and I won't do that again. Also, many many apologies for lack of mail. I have a bunch of letters (haha like three) written, and no stamps! So one day I will buy some. It might be in the airport on my way home, but I will try to make it a little bit sooner than that. So just know they are probably coming sometime. Oh my goodness, I just remembered that it is almost Jack's birthday! That little dude, just growin up too fast!! Yesterday my ward had the primary program. you better believe I cried when they sang that one song that goes, "I have a little family, it's me, it's you, we are God's children." Or whatever it really says. I just remember the dude's singing that and Jerm and I talking about how cute that song is. So when the primary sang it yesterday I just couldn't help but remember how much I really do miss those little boys. Mostly I just don't think about it because then I get all sad and whatnot, so that helps. But those dudes are the greatest! Dad you said how you realized or maybe not realized but just are thankful especially for your family. I couldn't agree more. I've learned about 290 things so far on my mission, but one of the most important things I have learned, or come to appreciate is the importance of families. I love you guys. I am thankful to be here, but I also look forward to the day I get to see you all again. And I hope that I will never take you for granted again. I am learning to govern myself out here, but that doesn't mean that I can't turn to my parents sometimes. I am just so thankful for you all. All of the little advice you give and encouragment and stories you share with me really help me. For example, Mo you sent me a talk in the MTC by Sister Holland, and one time for our visiting teaching assignment I just had the thought that we needed to share that talk with the member. She didn't have time to see us so we left her the talk and some cookies. The next Sunday her husband came up to us and thanked us for leaving that talk and he said it was really inspired that we left that one. And I would never have even heard of that talk if you hadn't sent it to me, so thank you! Heavenly Father just gets his work done in the craziest ways. He's the coolest. Anyway, even though I may not always comment on the things you send me or remember to thank you on pdays, just know that I am so thankful. As weird as it sounds, being a missionary is kind of lonely sometimes, but I have just infinite amounts of support from back home, and I owe that to you guys. Thank you thank you a million times over for all that you do and are doing for me. I love you all so much.
This Thanksgiving I spent on an exchange with Sister Blanc.

Since we didn't have our car this week we were blessed to walk for four days. It was honestly so nice. Except one day we accidentally missed the bus so we ended up walking two hours to the next town (Boucherville), but it was for a really important lesson that went really well and I was so thankful that we are blessed with super awesome bodies that are capable of walking two hours. Plus, we got to talk to a bunch of people. Since we are usually cooped up in a car, we don't talk to as many people. But walking definitely helped that. There are just so many blessings everywhere!
|Aliens did this to our car!! Or the engine...Not sure which|
